There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation, but there is only one place where vacation becomes adventure: Universal Orlando Resort. It is a unique destination featuring two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure, three magnificently themed on-site hotels and a nighttime entertainment complex. It's the only Orlando destination where you are not just entertained - you become part of the most exhilarating entertainment ever created. You can soar above Hogwarts with Harry Potter, swing above the streets with Spider-Man, battle aliens alongside Agent J, and help Shrek save Princess Fiona in Shrek 4-D. Now open: the new, heart-warming and hilarious Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride. And coming soon: Transformers The Ride-3D. Universal Orlando Resort is part of NBCUniversal, a Comcast company.

The most immersive park ever!

My children and I had been to Universal Studios in California fairly recently. While we enjoyed it, we didn't think it was anywhere near as wonderful as WDW. In particular we... read more

My children and I had been to Universal Studios in California fairly recently. While we enjoyed it, we didn't think it was anywhere near as wonderful as WDW. In particular we could see some of the "workings" on the Jurassic Park ride and recognized that would NEVER happen at WDW. That being said, we were looking forward to visiting Universal... More

Loved every minute of it. The walking tour of the Hogwarts was a little disappointing, but still a great park. Did not get on the ride through the castle, as I have motion issues. It may have been a great experience.

Absolutely brilliant and enjoyable. There are queues, but Universal know how to handle this and to be honest - you don't feel like you are waiting long and the line moves very fast. I'd recommend single riders though as the queue is even quicker. Spread across the 2 parks of Universal - it is simply amazing. We spent all day... More

The Hogsmeade village is just as you would imagine it, with Hogwarts school towering above it, and all the shops that you will recognise from the Harry Potter books. You can dine or sample a butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks (though you might have to queue for a while to get in), buy a wand at Ollivander's or sweets from... More

Myself and my other half are big HP fans and so the Wizarding World was absolutely fantastic! We could have wandered around there all day and not felt like we were missing anything else. We also couldn't resist trying the butterbeer (frozen was our favourite), and investing in a couple of wands! That said, the rest of the park is... More

Being here, for a potterhead, was the best thing ever. I really felt like I was in the world JK Rowling created. The staff was awesome and the shops were the best. I never wanted to leave! You can't beat how realistic it felt to be here. Truly a magical vacation

This was the highlight of our vacation. My teens have wanted to go here since it opened and we ALL loved it. It was a huge pleasure to see the books come to life and get to experience it. The park was easy to manage on Christmas Day and the day after but starting on Dec. 27th it was packed... More

We have talked about going to TWWOHP for so long. Finally, this past Summer we were able to make the trip. We drove from PA, and trip was SO worth it! From the moment you step foot into Hogsmeade, you are transported into the movie. In fact, you almost get whiplash from trying to take it all in! My biggest... More

For kids of all ages, a truly "magical" experience. Buy the motion activated wands- worth the 50$. Far superior to anything at Disney. Make sure to get lunch at the Leaky Cauldron (and ask for the menu so you can translate the old English food names) Gringots and Hogswarts are simply some of the finest rides anywhere.

This place is absolutely stunning. I thought for sure I was in the wizarding world. The moment I walked in, I knew I could spend the entire day just in this part of the park and we did. The restaurants are a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic. Although you feel like you are learning a second language just to... More
